Hyperkin X91 Controller
This officially licensed Xbox One controller reimagines the modern hardware as an old-school 90s device. Reminiscent of classic SNES gamepad, the inspiration for this model came after Hyperkin rigged an N64 controller to work on Xbox One. The result is this smaller offering that faithfully emulates the 90s-retro look and feel. Hyperkin is offering three color options: red, white, and black. The controller will feature a wired USB connection and 3.5 mm headset jack. This model is also Windows 10 compatible.

Mad Catz Tritton ARK 300
Mad Catz is upgrading their ARK series of wireless headsets with this new iteration, the ARK 300. If you have used any previous Tritton models, you will know they offer quality sound along with a high level of comfort. The ARK 300 is no exception to that and includes a fine-tuning dial to precisely adjust the headset fit, along with 3 EQ modes to alter your sound and a wireless charging station to charge your headset while not in use. There’s an option for playing and charging via the magnetic charge connector, and, as a bonus, customizable LED lighting to give your headset a unique appearance.

Nyko Intercooler Grip
For those still rocking their standard Xbox One wireless controllers, the Nyko Intercooler Grip offers a way to keep your hands cool while gaming. The grip fits onto the Xbox Controller without changing the way you hold it and uses a built-in fan to send cool air to your palms as you play. Thanks to an internal battery pack, it will not leech any juice from your controller. Nyko is well known for their console and controller attachments, particularly their charging bases. Here’s hoping the cooling grip lives up to the same standard of quality.
